I have a samsung smart tv and I have direct tv service. The direct tv box is connected to my tv with A/V cables. However I also have a converter box with a satellite to watch some channels that are in different languages. My problem is I can't connect the A/V cables from the converter box to the tv without taking out the direct tv box A/V Cables. Is there any way I can have both systems working at the same time and if so how and with what cables?

What model TV do you have? Depending on the inputs you have on your TV, you could connect the directv box to the tv with an HDMI cable. Then, leave the other sat box connected as is. There should be a button on your TV remote to switch between the 2 TV inputs.
